ShockolaD. Pokosy.

 Track 
Reviews (2)
ShockolaD. Pokosy.
It amazes at times how finely the Ukrainian folk songs are blended in with the jazz ideas by ShockolaD. Leaving aside the technique there, after all, any tune can be set for jazz, if theres a will. Lets pay attention to, as it were, arrangement aesthetics. ShockolaD may have limited itself to some hints at the source turning these songs into a riff with their complete mastery of performing. But the group changes the type of tune very neatly, and, at some extent, they rather add to it than change. It may somewhat confine the space for external developments, though as a result, the musicians keep closer to the main canvas streaming deep their fantasy that comes out newly tinted, with reflections of mastership, facets of source songs all these needing true consideration, and it is present here. Very likely it is due to less pronounced bass and percussions in this album that come to produce an expressive and strong groove. Keyboards and brass fly clear, emotionally, and rich, with the vocal brining in feelings and drive.

Briefly to mention 2, 10, and 12 tracks of the album to be true jazz romances, a kind of a city folk of a new age. These songs nicely blended with a whole picture of Pokosy promising to be a step forward of the group. All in all, it shows to be an interesting drift, doesnt it?

Volodymyr Solyanyk, Mykola Oorzhak, Serhiy Khmelyov. Tanets i zvuk orla. /digi-pack/. (The Dance and Sounds of an Eagle)


..the album is not free improvisation for keyboards, but a space of co-creation in the ethno-jazz spirit. Space so deep, versatile there is enough magic of rhythms, and magic of silence, not to mention the fact that Oorzhak's throat singing inevitably adds very characteristic colors.

Anton Pyvovarov. Lemkian Suite. /digi-pack/.


..the fact that a Kyivite turns to Lemkian songs is unexpected and interesting. The musicians are very caution about the authentic material, they do not shutter the songs architecture. Instead, they delicately unwrap and decorate the main lines, having arrived in their arrangements at a certain common denominator for the generally diverse plays..

Marinita. Marinita. /digi-pack/.


Marinita is, in fact, Maryna Zakharova, who was the heart of the very original project Anno Domini. So, Marinita is a certain development to the story, testing herself in a new, even more open format: with the opportunity to collaborate without any special linking to a certain composition. The debut album under the new name...

Ewa Novel, ShockolaD. Nova. /digi-pack/.


..the circle is closed for them to reach something new: from the initial composition, only Anastasia Litvinyuk and Ihor Hnydyn have stayed, the rest of the lines are within responsibility of our Polish brethren led by Ewa Novel. And somehow quite expectedly the band's music has regained its distinct ethno-jazz colors, stepping aside from the previous lounge rails.

Nino Katamadze, Insight. Yellow.


..And there ever is love for the music no matter where musicians roam following the quest while working on new material. Yellow. Life-giving. Hot and humid. Warm. Dry and mirage-like. Joyful. Acute. Crumbling. Spicy. Soft. Diverse and alive... Listen.
Domestic price: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

ShockolaD. Schedryi vechir z dobrym jazzom. /re-edition, eco-pack/. (Christmas Eve Wiz Good Jazz)


In its previous album "Pokosy", ShockolaD stepped away from jazz for an almost safe distance the key definition of the work would be "ethno-lounge". Well, and this time the group seems to have decided to remix all familiar ingredients both the ethno, and jazz, and acoustic lounge and, sure, to season it with a few new colors.

Olga Voichenko, Sergey Kapeliushok, Pavlo Shepeta. Spivanochky moi. Ukrainian folk songs. /eco-pack/. (My Songs)


The recording is luxurious perhaps, one could hardy put it in other words. This is something that so far we have not had: a vocal and instrumental album of Ukrainian folk songs at the intersection of jazz, chamber and symphonic, variety art music (such as, for example, songs by Frank Sinatra or Astrud Gilberto)...
Domestic price: 284.20UAH, International price: $20.30USD

Er.J.Orchestra. The Unicorn. (remastered). /digi-pack/.


This is the third album in the official discography of Er.J.Orchestra. And I really hope that it will be not a stop, not completion of the trilogy, but one of the many pearls on the thread. Such music simply must be incarnated, sound, fill the space at least because honest beauty, dignity, authenticity live in it...
Domestic price: 320.60UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Nino Katamadze, Insight. Green.


Very transparent, juicy, quiet and confident and yet full of irrepressible life this is what this work appears like. Stylistically, it continues the trend including the albums "Black" and "Red" the pure jazz-rock line, with no direct immersions into the lounge or symphonicity. But in a much softer, tender version.
Domestic price: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Yuliya Roma. Raduysya. Ukrainian carols. /digi-pack/. (Rejoice)


To enrich them with modern colors without destroying the subtle paths of the light joy inherent in Christmas carols and shchedrivkas which is not an easy task. Since it requires great attention and tolerance. Finally, it just requires love for this music, for the roots and love that is creative. And it seems they have succeeded.
Domestic price: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

DomRa. Kupalska.


Victor Solomin is virtually the only jazz domra-player in Ukraine, therefore the both of his ethno-jazz projects "SolominBand" and "DomRa" have here no immediate analogues just by definition. Besides, "DomRa" can boast two key instruments at once: those are the domra and the vocal, and it is they that provide the "ethnic component" of the sounding here.
Domestic price: 152.60UAH, International price: $10.90USD

Er.J.Orchestra. The Unicorn Live. (2CD).


...each of them separately does not really have almost anything too sophisticated, to say nothing about the superfluous but these transparent lines interlace so pointedly and charmingly, that an indescribably rich matter of light appears. In the case of Er.J.Orchestra, it is not only about concert improvisations the issue is discovery and creation of old-new worlds, no less.
Domestic price: 334.60UAH, International price: $23.90USD

ShockolaD. Single. /mini-pack/.


ShockolaD again combines Ukrainian folklore with improvisational music, and the ethnic component, as well as before, is strong and expressive but this time the group represents fusion that literally borders on world music. In other words, in our view, this is soft music understandable for a very wide public which, nevertheless, remains pleasantly intelligent, delicate.
Domestic price: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Z-Band, Igor Zakus. Kolomyyky. /digi-pack/. (Kolomyikas)


"Kolomyikas" is a good album with bright pieces that are able to capture the audience as it is, even without associations with the material it derives from. In the end, there was no "weak link" in the team of the albums creators. That is, probably, the reason why, without regard to the intense structure, there is within the music fabric freedom, which makes it possible to breathe deeply.
Domestic price: 250.60UAH, International price: $17.90USD

Fusion Orchestra. Apocrypha. /digi-pack/


Yes, in this music you can still hear well the hot southern sun but still, on the foreground, you have original cool elegance. And one can feel based on which law the space of the disc is designed: rather not to satiate, but to extend this space as much as possible but softly.
Domestic price: 264.60UAH, International price: $18.90USD

Yuriy Kovtun. BraviBelli.


...the album at once creates elated, festive mood but in a surprising way. In the correct way. Because, although about a half of the compositions can hardly be called merry ones a smile is very expressly felt in them. Somewhere dim, somewhere transparent, somewhere dreamy, somewhere thoughtful but it is present in each piece, and it warms.
Domestic price: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Motion Trio. Pictures from the Street.


It seems to me that none who has at least once heard performance by Motion Trio and the more so none who has seen it will ever forget, mix it up with anybody. And the thing is not only original composition although you will hardly find among performers of jazz, art rock, folk fusion another trio what would consist exceptionally of accordions.
Domestic price: 382.20UAH, International price: $27.30USD

Fusion Orchestra. Octagon. /digi-pack/


It is great pleasure to listen to music that has let in, changed, satiated and breathed out so many bright impressions, lives, root... When music is wide open everybody can drink from it, see one's face in it, find in its one's real.
